Fabrica, in collaboration with Fondazione Benetton, has presented the book The Big Necessity by Rose George, former journalist and editor at COLORS magazine.
The Big Necessity: In the early twenty-first century, when surgery can be done microscopically and human achievement seems limitless, 2.6 billion people lack the most basic thing that human dignity requires. Four in ten people in the world have no toilet. They must do their business instead on roadsides, in the bushes, wherever they can. Yet human feces in water supplies contribute to one in ten of the world’s communicable diseases. Human “waste” is a rich, valuable, inexhaustible material, as rich as the world of people who work with it. The Big Necessity is an overdue exploration of a hidden world and of the world’s biggest unsolved public health crisis. It is a cultural, colourful travelogue around a fact of life that is common to everyone, as necessary as breathing, and a source of endless fascination, if only we dare to look.
The lecture took place on October 25th 2010 at Fondazione Benetton in Treviso, Italy.
